Dan Farber was named the editor in chief of News.com. I was an avid reader of News.com for years then abandoned it for blogs.

The good news here is two fold: 1) Dan is a great guy and a pro, and 2) he’s a blogger. I’ve called him the “Don” of blogging because many of the best bloggers all have come to know and respect Dan. In a way he’s been a mentor to many of the blogger branded publishers out there – he’s like the Godfather for professional bloggers.

Great move for CNet and News.com. Congrats to Dan.

Here is a candid shot I took of Dan at the Techcrunch party this past summer.
